Brian Higbee joins Metropolitan State University’s Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship as the new Operations Coordinator.
Higbee says that it was a fun choice to move to Minnesota, because it’s so different from New York City, and that he’s enjoying learning about the arts and history native to our state. He’s excited to work at Metropolitan State, because he enjoys engaging with the students, helping them to learn, and helping make a difference in their lives. Higbee says, “I enjoy being a part of something bigger.”
Originally from Rochester, New York, Higbee has lived in Nantucket, MA, McLean, VA, and for the past 20 years in New York City, working the last 10 years as a senior program coordinator for the BuildingWorks pre-apprenticeship training program with the New York City District Council of Carpenters Training Center. Brian earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in communications design from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.
